This school version includes teacher's notes and exercises.

The only problem is that this year's Rex King of the Mardi Gras – a local property developer called Darrin Hibiscus – hasn't been seen since he went up the steps of Gallier Hall to collect the keys to the city.
The Mayor waited in vain in his office, but the king never appeared. His wife, the Queen waited for him to pass by, but he never did.
Maid Coralie: "He brought a chocolate donut to the class and he ate it in front of everyone while I was trying to remind them of how they should be eating healthy from now on. And he kept laughing during the section on exercise. He wrecked it for everyone."
